Ancient Egypt Gallery

Child in the Ancient Egypt Gallery.

Ancient Egypt

Programs for the Ancient Egypt Gallery focus on collecting evidence and using artefacts to gain insights into an ancient civilisation through primary and secondary sources.

In the gallery students will develop a different understanding of the diversity of human culture. Key inquiry questions that are addressed include:

  • How do we know about the ancient past?
  • What emerged as the defining characteristics of ancient society?
